I studied Art in Universidad de Los Andes one of the best schools in Bogotá, Colombia. Then moved to NYC to study an MFA in Digital Arts in Pratt Institute. My first job was an internship at Daniel Arsham Studios. It was a remarkable experience. From a young age I have always collaborate with colleagues by creating collectives and art/design studios where we approach different creative backgrounds.
Art direction applied to different platforms in accordance to the projects and concepts suggested or planned. I am the creator and owner of BITACORA™ – a space where art and design intertwine, incubating projects, ideas, experiments, concepts and production processes that generate a colourful spectrum of results.
Andrea Vargas Gaviria—Graphic Designer and Art Director. By far the person I have collaborated with most in co-creating projects, developing thoughts and fulfilling dreams.
Luis Mayorga—ndustrial Designer. Business Partner in upcoming projects. A guy I can relate with regarding projects and manifesting amazing ideas.
Natalia Barragán Nieto—Junior Designer. A fresh approach to contemporary thinking.
Researching, observing and living. I believe beyond the internet the key is to interact with others and create social interactions in different contexts that will help you expand your senses in order to co-create with the universe.
The future is all about creating experiences. To get out of the absorbing hyper virtual realities and start living with all our senses. Personally, I am expanding my practices to architectural and sculptural developments to create new projects.
Bogotá is the new hot spot for entrepreneurs in Latin America. I love to be part of a city that is creating for the first time its own identity. I feel lucky to be part of its cultural growth. My studio Bitâcora offers initiatives that diffuse the idea of art and design as opposing disciplines and define them as complements.
I think we need to speak to other audiences. Create social and sustainable design but not in terms of production but in terms of anthropological research.
Re-coding our thoughts to manifest our projections.
